“Grandpa said, “That John McCain is a goddamned liar.”
You could have heard a pin drop. My husband, who was wide-eyed, pressed him for details.
Grandpa whispered that John McCain didn’t give a shit about veterans and he wanted to know who the hell McCain thought he was foolin’. See, Grandpa is a veteran of the Korean War and the Vietnam War. He’s undoubtedly the most patriotic man I know, and takes great pride in the time he spent serving his country. He keeps up on veterans affairs and the outright lie from McCain about wanting to make sure the veterans are supported really got Grandpa’s goat. He said he wondered how many times McCain has gone to any VA hospital to see the kinds of hoops veterans have to jump to to get their benefits and why he’s never made it easier for them. And he also wondered why John McCain votes against vets so often if he cares about them so much. He said John McCain is an empty shell of a man and an embarrassment to vets everywhere. My husband and I were stunned.”
